 Yes, I am sure most people would. However, I have noticed that normal posts
on topics of this nature are handily dispatched with singular consistancy,
usually with reference to historical discussion buried somewhere deep in the
list archives. Or just ignored.

 Squeaky wheels, Drastic Measures, Desparate Times and all that. 
 Some times the grotesque is simply the most engaging. Caught _you_ checking
back in, didn't we? :;-}

 Beware circular logic. This just means that the first thing to do is accept
people that would like to learn the ins and outs of the application process. It
would be well worth the time to teach them, don't you think?

If that is the case then two things could happen:
	a. apply the same standards of access for some other
	<insert long list> things that need attention and
	b. Post information on this prominantly

 Personally, I have never recieved any acknowledgement that anyone even
looked at mail I have sent ... and, no, I'm not really habitually obnoxious:).
They probably got tossed with a thousand other emails, really quite normal
in a large organization.
